for the future of platforms facilitating
people to people contacts
- A community of experts should develop a mechanism for the intensification of contacts between formal and informal civil society organizations in Russia, and European partners.
- It will be important to have a broader set of participants. From Russia, this should include representatives of the “creative class” — filmmakers, lawyers, social entrepreneurs, historians etc. On the EU side, it should include a wider range of Russia experts and professionals interested in Russia from all over the EU.
- It will be important to invite as many representatives as possible of EU institutions and NATO in Brussels, dealing with relations with Russia, and also representatives of business with investments in Russia.
